Hate That Cat by Sharon Creech
In this sequel to Love That Dog we find Jack back in class with Miss Stretchberry, the teacher who taught him to love poetry. Jack learns more about poetry and, as before, tries his hand at writing his own using the new devices and styles he knows about now. A lot of his poetry is about a local mean black cat who seems to be around when Jack doesn't want to see him at all. Although he is sure he could never like a cat as much as his dog Sky, Jack's beliefs are tested when his parents get him a kitten.
